NFL player found not guilty of skipping out on South Street bar tab

    It feels like ages ago, but it hasn’t even been a year since Philly native NFL player Raheem Brock was arrested for allegedly ditching a bar tab on South Street.

    Brock, also a former Temple player, maintained his innocence. A judge agreed yesterday, also finding Brock’s friend not guilty.
    As the Daily News explains it, Brock was at an outside table at Copabanana when his friend brought over a cheesesteak from a restaurant nearby. The pair, and Brock’s cousin, canceled their order before it arrived, only to be arrested when Copabanana told police the trio ditched the bill.

    Brock denied a plea deal to prevent himself from looking guilty to NFL teams who might have been scouting him.
